The American Legion Post 29 in Greenwich opened its 2015 baseball season on Monday afternoon, and Youth Officer Erford Porter threw out the ceremonial first pitch.

“Baseball has a tradition, an American tradition. It’s a great game. I played as a kid, through the service, and after the service,” said Porter.

“It keeps the youth in Town busy. It’s a good opportunity for them to practice their skills,” said Vincent Masi of the American Legion Post 29.

“There is a special feeling about baseball, when it is coached right. And we have been blessed to have a group of great coaches and the program is beginning to build on its own,” aid Porter.

Officials say this league prepares the players to be the best they can be.
